I either have way too much traction or not enough. I was talking to someone last night and they suggested clay slicks. They said, they just felt more consistent on the track than M4. Probably because the M4 might fold over in the corners. Also, I just wanted to show the difference of MM and RM on the same track and same layout for those trying to decide between the RM and MM cars. The RM car is still by far the easiest of the two to drive. But, if you want steering and lots of it, imo the MM is the way to go. Also, my RM buggy was 1525 without pucks and i had 20g of chassis tape on the car. My RM car is about 70 grams lighter than the MM car. If i had a shorty servo and pucks in my RM car, I would be under weight in a heart beat. Normally, when I am struggling with the MM, I throw the RM car down and its great...provided my slipper is not way off. I was slipping for a good 5 feet, lol. That is why I was having issues with jumps. My plan is to get the MM car where I want it, because it "feels" like it could be a much better car.

Just came home from lhs with a B5m. If you can't beat em, join em. What does it take to run TLR front wheels on the B5m? Hopefully not too difficult. The TLR wheel has a smaller hex.

Ok, the tlr fronts dont really work. Different hex and different offset. That being said, so guys have shimmed and used the tlr22 axles on the B5. I have not tried it, because you cant get the same offset as the B5 hexes and wheels. I suppose someone could machine a hex axle that would allow it to fit, but no idea what it would do to performance.

what are you HAing? I told him what he would have to make it work. If he has 22 axles, he can give it a shot and see what it does for him. But, yeah I prefer to keep things OEM. I guess I am just vanilla that way HA. lol
